You do not need to speak another language to study abroad. Many programs offer courses in English.
When to Study Abroad
Due to Capstone requirements students cannot study abroad during the spring semester of their junior year and their entire senior year. The best time for DMS students to study abroad is the fall of their junior year or the spring of their sophomore year, if they’ve completed their introductory DMS coursework. Students can also study abroad the summer after their sophomore or junior year.
The following programs are especially suited for students looking to take digital media studies courses while abroad:
- DIS Copenhagen (Denmark)
- CIEE Sharjah (United Arab Emirates)
- University of York (United Kingdom)
- Nanyang Technological University (Singapore)
- Seoul National University (South Korea)
- Internships in Europe - Edinburgh (Scotland)
